This course is meant for the reader and writer who has an interest in the struggles different minorities have experienced and how that has been portrayed in literature. The literature will not be limited to one particular group or time period but will give a well rounded portrayal of the many difficulties literary characters have had simply because of the color of their skin, their gender, their religion or their social class.
